The 15U team took second place after losing a close game to the Stilly Venom 5-3 in the championship. In a strange twist, the 15U met the 16U team place in the loser’s bracket to battle for the opportunity to play in the championship game. In a hard-fought battle, the 15U team held on for an 8-7 victory to advance. With that loss, the 16U team finished the tournament in third place. The photo of the two teams was taken at the conclusion of their game. Congratulations to both teams on a great season.
